Hi all, newbie here. I bought a 2001 KZ1000-P20 Police bike a few months ago and have ridden only a few hundred miles on it. (I was delayed by leaks in the first gas tank.) It's a LOT different ride than my old 1600 Road Star!
I would welcome advice on (at least!) two questions below after a little background.
After reading helpful threads here, I did use electrical connection cleaner from Radio Shack on all the connections I could find. I tried to look for obvious problem connections. The only one I found is one wire for back turn signal seemed bad so I replaced it with auto spade connectors. I don't think I did a very good job and may need better connectors (?). This may be the problem for first question.
Yesterday, when I got to work I noticed my headlamp was out and the fuse for it was blown. I replaced 10A fuse and rode home and it didn't blow again. I have the wiring diagram on it and Chilton manual for the bike but not much experience with auto/mc eletrical stuff. How would I go about finding a short assuming this is the problem? Just take off gas tank and poke around?
Secondly, the old police pursuit lights on front are disconnected (with cheap clear bulbs in their place). I would like to swap out the headlight with Truck-Light 7" led lamp. It looks like their 3 pin connector will work "plug and play." Next I want to get some led passing lamps in the front cowling where those pursuit lights are. I realize there's going to be a modulator for the old lights somewhere (?). Can I just take this out??
Maybe too many questions but a hint from you experts will be much appreciated!
